Ironlord was a merc affiliated with the Dark Athena. He had become the undisputed king of the ship's underground fight club (between the crew-members), which became more rampant when Revas took charge of the ship. Most of his intelligence is gone, due to his constant steroid abuse. When the ship containing Riddick and Johns was highjacked by the ship, Riddick encountered Ironlord near the berthing area, whilst on a mission to kill Margo Marvins for Jaylor. Although he is unarmed, he was still a tough fighter.
He has several tattoos: Gear on the back of his head, Scorpion on his back, Cross on his chest, two Skulls under his clavicles, and Strength written under his belly button.
